A walk down memory lane, Bobby Vinton’s ‘Blue Velvet’.
I have seen several wonderful repaint studies on RedBubble of Vermeer’s ‘The Pearl’. This is my fun version of it, not a milkmaid but a real life seventeenth century party girl. This digital painting is all mouse drawn and painted in Photoshop 5.5. Windows ‘98 platform. I would like to think my version of the ’Pearl’ is how Mr. Vemeer would have painted it if he was a commercial illustrator in the 21’st century. He liked bright color as is being discovered when they clean centuries of grime off his wonderful paintings.
I recieved a reproduction back on this design. The color is just as brilliant as you see on screen.
